VIDEO: Pink Floyd stream rare 1968 TV performance

Pink Floyd are streaming rare video of a 1968 performance of “Instrumental Improvisation” originally broadcast on the BBC TV program “The Sound Of Change”, as a preview to the March 24 release of a series of individual volumes from “The Early Years 1965-1972” box set.

The band were filmed in concert in London, UK on March 26, 1968 for an episode about cultural revolution through music.

The footage appears on the DVD/Blu-ray portion of “1968 Germin/ation”, one of six volumes to be issued separately this month after appearing on last November’s release of the box set.

The massive 27-disc package features 130 tracks from the band’s formative years, including TV recordings, BBC Sessions, outtakes, demos and more than 20 unreleased songs alongside 7 hours of previously unreleased live audio and more than 5 hours of rare concert footage.

The group have previously previewed the project with videos of a 1967 performance of “Interstellar Overdrive”, and clips for 1969’s “Grantchester Meadows” and “Green Is The Colour”, and the 1972 track “Childhood’s End.”

In addition to the six volumes spotlighting Pink Floyd’s work by year, a 2-CD highlights album, “The Early Years – Cre/ation”, is also available.
